Critic Reviews for Dealing With Idiots

All Critics (19) | Top Critics (13)

"Dealin' With Idiots," a sort of "Waiting for Guffman" for Little League, isn't a great movie, but it's a heck of a lot better than its title.

August 15, 2013 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

[A] flat, aimless comedy skewering the parents of junior baseball players.

Top Critic

Garlin's ultra-restrained approach suggests that attempting hilarity is sometimes a veiled defense mechanism.

Top Critic

The movie was largely improvised, which lends itself more to scenes than a feature-length film.

July 18, 2013 | Rating: 2/4 | Full Review…

There are a few inspired moments, but Garlin goes for easy laughs, and the actors' broad improvisations often fall flat.

July 18, 2013 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

This isn't actually a movie about kiddie sports - it's a movie about Garlin interviewing the other parents and players to see if there's an interesting movie to be made at all. Answer: There isn't.
